Galvanizing Gatekeepers: The Prosecution’s Role in the Current Immigration Landscape

April 20, 2021

1:00 pm – 2:15 pm ET
CLE: 1.25 Credits

Though immigration law is federal, a local prosecutor’s charging, plea bargaining, and post-conviction decision often has the power to determine who does, or does not, end up with immigration consequences following a particular conviction. Since the landmark Supreme Court decision of Padilla v. Kentucky, defense counsel has increasingly embraced their duty to advise and defend immigrant defendants about the immigration consequences of criminal convictions. But, beyond u-visas, what is the prosecutor’s duty to immigrant defendants? This training will begin to close the information gap that has divided prosecutors and defense counsel. It will provide a foundational explanation of the immigration consequences of crimes and discuss what prosecutor offices around the country are doing to address the unique concerns of immigrants and the immigrant community.
